Development corporation names CEO

The Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation has a new leader at the helm.

Sasha Angus takes over as chief executive officer Sept. 4, replacing former CEO Susan Cudahy.

Angus, from Edmonton, spent the last five years in a business development role at the Greater Victoria Development Agency, hosting trade delegations and working on economic development strategies.

He attended school in Victoria and worked for the Alberta government before joining GVDA in 2007.

“I am excited by the opportunity with NEDC,” said Angus, in a press release. “I have had a great five years in economic development for Victoria and look forward to working with the board, local businesses, to attract jobs and investment to the mid-Island.”

A.J. Hustins, NEDC board chairman, said Angus stood out as an exceptional candidate in the extensive search for a CEO.

“We believe Sasha will hit the ground running and will be a real difference-maker for our region,” he said. For more information, please go to www.investnanaimo.com.
